The Border Target Operating Model: Draft for Feedback

By April 14, 2023No Comments

The Government, with the support of the Scottish and Welsh Governments, has published the new draft Border Target Operating Model (TOM) which can be found here.

The draft Border Target Operating Model proposes a new approach to security controls (applying to all imports), and sanitary and phytosanitary controls (applying to imports of live animals, animal products, plants and plants products) at the border.

It sets out how controls will be simplified, digitised and, over time, delivered through the UK’s new Single Trade Window. The document has been developed through engagement with stakeholders, collaboration across the UK, Scottish and Welsh Governments, and engagement with officials from the devolved administration in Northern Ireland.

Stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on the proposals before a final version is published in June.

If you wish to provide feedback on the draft model you can do so by completing the online survey here.
